Error trying to print from OS Maps

more options

Whenever I try to print a map from OS Maps I get an error when it tries to open a new tab for a .pdf file. How can I get round this?

Chosen solution

When I click the Print button on a map on https://explore.osmaps.com/ it wants me to create an account. So presumably you have an account.

My guess is that the site is creating a nice PDF in the background and sending it to Firefox to either save or display, but I'm not sure what the error is. What message to you get?
